LGBT Life Center announces 21st Annual Dining Out For Life

Participating locations across Hampton Roads donate proceeds to LGBT Life Center’s annual fundraiser on April 25.

LGBT Life Center (The Center) proudly announces the 21st Annual Dining Out For Life fundraiser presented by Langley FCU. On Thursday, April 25, nearly 50 participating locations across Hampton Roads will donate 33-50% of their sales to support the programs and services at The Center.

Over the past 20 years, Dining Out for Life has become a signature event for Hampton Roads. Participating locations, volunteers, corporate sponsors, and generous donors across Hampton Roads have raised over $1.5 million to date through this annual fundraising event. Dining Out For Life directly supports initiatives in the Hampton Roads community, including housing, healthcare, mental health services, pharmacy services, food pantry programs, and HIV prevention and treatment. LGBT Life Center is the largest LGBTQ+ health and support services agency in Virginia, and the 5th largest in the U.S.

Volunteer-driven, Dining Out For Life thrives off the participation of community members. With over 20 years of success, it is a highly anticipated event that draws an ever-growing crowd to each participating location. An LGBT Life Center Ambassador will be on site at each location, with resources and information available about the health and support services offered throughout Hampton Roads.

“I’ve never been thanked by so many patrons for participating in an event.” said John Childers, MJs Tavern owner, “I can honestly say that when you join Dining Out For Life, it creates loyal customers while supporting a great cause.”

Over 1.2 million individuals are living with HIV in The United States. As part of a nationwide strategy to stop the spread, centers like LGBT Life Center provide preventative resources like condoms, PrEP, treatment, social and support groups, LIFE-affirming health care, housing, pharmacy services, mental health counseling, and many other layers of support that are all proven methods in limiting new infections.

We know that providing holistic LIFE-care is the best approach to an individual’s health, as well as our community’s health. LGBT Life Center is proud to be marking the 21st anniversary of Dining Out For Life in Hampton Roads.
